I'm cramping to the point that the pain is making me want to vomit.
I just went to the bathroom and noticed that my poop looks like coffee grounds, but its not black its brown, like really dark brown.
I know black and coffee grounds usually signify blood, so what the hell is this? Is it normal?

Maybe look it up on a medical website?  Type in your symptoms and maybe you can figure out what's going on and if you need to go to the ER.  And stay hydrated, drink a huge glass of water!

Go to ER right now. Poo that looks like coffee grounds can be a sign of internal bleeding

Do you have an urgent care near you? cheaper co-pay at least. And if you have to go to the ER they will let you pay whatever you can on your co-pay and bill you for the rest. You really should be seen. Good luck, and get feeling better!

 yes.. there is a misconception that blood will look one way or the other in stool or vomitus... but it actually has many different presentations, all which give clues to where its comming from...

Coffee ground stool can indicate blood in the bowel, and can be caused by virus, chron's disease, cancer, or constipation.. You need to at least go to an urgent care, and if not available you need to go to an ER, especailly with severe abdominal pain on top of it....
